Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is so close to Victoria Station, and the Tate Britain is walkable. The area is great, with lots of little restaurants. The hotel staff were always helpful, the breakfast was great, and the shower was amazing. Other reviews mentioned spotty wifi, which the management must've fixed because we had no trouble using devices in our room. Excellent experience!

Great hotel, staff were very accommodating. I booked a twin room that could be a king on request, all sorted for us easily. The room was a good size for a London hotel, very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was good, lots of choice and a well cooked full English. Great location, 10 mins to Victoria. Definitely will look to...

The staff was very frendly, Wonderful English and continental (superb croissants) and cooked breakfasts each morning. Hotel is just a 5 or 6 minute walk to Victoria Station to catch the Tube/Train/Bus The room was clean and warm. The beds were very dood to sleep. A little lack was that taxes arranged by hotel didnt accept creditcards.

Stayed here just one night, clearly a family run hotel but with high standards and in simple language run by a family that treats guests in the way I am sure they would like to be treated themselves, Friendly cooperative and obliging from start to finish Another hidden gem, would stay again.

We are a family of four. Our two adult 20-something children stayed with us in the Family Suite, comprised of two interconnected rooms, each with its own clean, modern and well-equipped bathroom. We spent 5 nights, and what a wonderful quiet hotel to come home to after a long day of touring. The packaged cookies, along with tea and coffee...

A lovely hotel with friendly, helpful staff. They have a great breakfast offering. (Told them I was gluten free before my stay, and they had safe food for me at breakfast!)

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
